Forklift Training

"These are exciting and dynamic times and we need to ensure that our customers see us as a 'complete' provider of all things Forklift Truck related... including training!" – Paul Brierley, M.D. Eastern Forklift Trucks Ltd.

Why we need to train?

Regulation 9 of the Provision and Use of Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 states that:

"Every employer shall ensure that all persons who use work equipment have received adequate training for purposes of health and safety, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using work equipment, any risks which such use may entail; and precautions to be taken"

PUWER clearly states that all employers that have the use of Forklift Trucks on their site must ensure that those that operate them are correctly trained. PUWER has been written in consultation with the Health and Safety at Work (HASAW) 1974. It is these Acts and Regulations that can lead to prosecution should employers not comply with them.
